Before founding Presbyterian College, William Plumer Jacobs wrote the following in his journal in 1874:
“I have at last set my heart on a plan; it is nothing more nor less than the establishment of a college at Clinton. It will take a vast outlay of time and money but it can be done and, God willing, it shall be done.”
PC is in a time of transition—a time that will once again require “a vast outlay of time and money.” This time, however, we are ready for it. PC has a strong foundation of alumni, students, and other supporters who are passionate about and confident in PC’s future. From upgrading our facilities and technology, to enhancing our academic programs, it is an exciting time here at PC. But one that requires support. It will only be through the generosity of our alumni and friends that PC will reach its potential as a truly great college.
We are already doing so much right:
• Approximately 90% of our students are in graduate programs or are employed within six months after graduation.
• PC has had six South Carolina Professors of the Year, twice as many as any other school in the state.
• More than 75% of PC students volunteer, serving the community in a number of ways.
• PC’s ROTC program was ranked second among liberal arts colleges by Washington Monthly in 2012.
• We compete in Division I athletics and are the smallest Division I school in the country.
Through your support, imagine where PC can be by 2050. We want to be truly great. We want to be influential. We believe in the power of a PC education—and in the support of the PC community.
